"The addition of these Auckland voyages reinforces our dedication to new and unique itineraries with a broad range of appeal, both with sightseeing and Princess' onboard offering.

"New Zealand passengers are well catered with a selection of acclaimed local wines and beers served onboard. New Zealand culinary delights also feature prominently in the restaurant menus."
